Chennai: A woman slapped a Tamil Nadu Police sub inspector after he assaulted her husband. The video of the same is going viral.

According to reports, V Muthuraman, 26, the woman's husband had a tiff with contractor Subash Chandra Bose, 28. The contractor was appointed by the Thiruvennainallur block development office and was taking care of the construction work under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana mission and allegedly had taken money from Muthuraman and cheated. To teach him a lesson, he seized his two-wheeler.

It appears that the contractor had stuck a deal with police and on his behalf, SI Thangavel attached to Thiruvennainallur police station in Villupuram district, had come to Muthuraman's house.

Muthuraman, who was drunk, allegedly abused the policeman. The SI then smashed his face. After seeing Muthuraman bleeding, his wife Sarita, 24, who was there, slapped Thangavel.

Soon villagers gathered and snatched his bike keys. Fearing for his life, the SI fled the scene.

Sensing trouble, Villupuram DSP Nallasivam and Thiruvennainallur police station inspector Pandiyan arrived at Anathur village and took the villagers into confidence. After the peace talks, they took the police bike and left. Villupuram SP S Radhakrishnan ordered for an inquiry.
